"The Fiddler," by Beverly Lewis
A wrong turn in a rainstorm leads Englisher Amelia Devries to Michael
Hostetler--and the young Amish man's charming Old Order community of Hickory
Hollow. Despite their very different backgrounds, Amelia and Michael both feel
hemmed in by the expectations of others and struggle with how to find room for
their own hopes. And what first seems to be a chance encounter might just change
their lives forever.
I am a huge fan of Beverly Lewis' books and although this book was very pleasant there was something missing from it. Not sure what, but it didn't seem "meaty," enough for me. It was like having a roast beef dinner with all the trimmings without the roast beef.
The story itself was okay and the characters were fine, and it even got me "sucked in" right away, but when I had finished the book, I felt I had missed something?
This is the first book in the "Home to Hickory Hollow," series. The second book "The Bridesmaid," will be released in September of this year.
Stars out of 5 : 4, I did enjoy the book overall. It was easy to read and if you love reading about the Amish you will enjoy this book.
